How the Summer Sun Affects Your Asphalt Driveway

How the Summer Sun Affects Your Asphalt Driveway

We all know about the damage the sun can cause to our skin when exposed for too long, especially without sunscreen, but are you aware the sun can wreak havoc on your asphalt driveway and parking lot as well? The sun causes everything from fatigue cracking, fading to potholes.

What the summer sun and heat do to asphalt

As the temperatures rise, so does the temperatures in the asphalt of your driveway or parking lot. When the asphalt becomes too hot, it softens making it prone to damage from even the normal wear and tear traffic.

Luckily there is a solution…Seal coating…Without the proper protection of the seal coating, which acts as a sunblock to your skin, the asphalt color will fade and begin cracking. Sealcoating will keep your asphalt and shield it from the heat and UV rays while also covering small cracks and improving the overall aesthetic appeal of your driveway or parking lot.
